Please join us as we kick-off the year-long celebration of the Freedom to Read Foundation's 45th anniversary!  (We're using the #FTRF45 hashtag for all our 45th Anniversary events.)

On November 20, 1969, the Freedom to Read Foundation filed its Articles of Incorporation with the State of Illinois, marking the official start of a journey that has helped ensure the protection of some of our most basic rights.

On November 20, 2014, join our speakers on a Google Hangout as we discuss FTRF's history, current activities, and plans for the upcoming year! This event will be simulcast on YouTube and the recording will be posted there for those unable to participate live.

Speakers: author Chris Crutcher, FTRF Executive Director ​Barbara M. Jones​, FTRF President Julius C. Jefferson, Jr.,  FTRF General Counsel Theresa Chmara, and University of Illinois assistant professor Emily Knox in this special event - and learn about some of the great events that you can participate in over the coming 12 months!

Registration not necessary (but welcome). We hope you can join us!
